Christ Is Coming!
By Charles H. Spurgeon
Often do I cheer myself with the thought of the Coming of the Lord. The shout shall be heard, “Alleluia! Alleluia! The Lord God Omnipotent reigns.” My anxious expectation is that the blessed Sun of righteousness will soon arise with healing in His wings, that the oppressed shall be righted, that despotism shall be cut down, that liberty shall be established, that peace shall be made lasting, and that the glorious liberty of the children of God shall be extended throughout the known world. Christian! If it is night with you, think of tomorrow; cheer up your heart with the thought of the Coming of your Lord. Be patient, for you know who has said, “Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be” (Rev. 22:12).
Ah, believer, you may always cheer yourself with that thought! Your head may be crowned with thorny troubles now, but it shall wear a starry crown presently; your hand may be filled with cares, it shall grasp a harp soon, a harp full of music. Your garments may be soiled with dust now; they shall be white by and by. Wait a little longer. Let us go on, therefore; and if the night is ever so dark, remember there is not a night that shall not have a morning; and that morning is to come by and by.
